Sattlerhof Sudsteiermark Sauvignon Blanc 2017
The name Sattlerhof is a promise- of outstanding quality and an extraordinary experience. It is lived up to by the whole family, and especially the two brothers - Willi und Hannes Sattler – who lend each of the two Sattlerhof activities their special character.
Tradition meets progress
The young generation increasingly leaves its marks on all things concerning the Sattlerhof. Tradition and innovation are the roots for the young ones in shaping the successful future of our family-owned winery. Our son Andreas studies viticulture, has taken co-responsibility for three harvests to date and also started training for the Wine Acadamy Diploma. Our son Alexander has meanwhile created his second wine -which will bereleased in May 2015. Daughter Michaela studies art and has, among other things, designed the labels for Element Sauvignon blanc and Grassnitzburg Sauvignon blanc. Our youngest one, Lukas, is currently training in graphic design and contributes creative ideas in many ways.
VINEYARDS The wines are cultivated on very steep hills, challenging vineyards with perfect exposures: Selective harvest exclusively by hand in small boxes.
SOIL sand, gravel, shell limestone
VINIFICATION Fermented in stainless steel tanks Classic maturation on the fine lees 3 - 4 months
CHARACTER A truly spectacular aroma with plenty of green and yellow bell pepper, fresh citrus, and fragrant ripe pear. After aeration, aromas reminiscent of black currant appear. The wonderful aromas continue on the crisp and vibrant palate. Abundant drinking pleasure.
A Sauvignon Blanc to enjoy on its own or as a congenial accompaniment to delicate spring dishes like asparagus.
